When you are looking through dating sites, have you ever felt they are using a foreign language?

Keep in mind this is a culture that is constantly evolving, so new terms, abbreviations and phrases are being invented all the time. We have thrown a list together, from the terms we recall but it's by no means complete. If you can think of some we have missed send us an email and we'll add them to the list. Make sure to include the meaning as well.
